Sunday July 8th

White-faced individuals, just a handful were seen over the weekend, note the large bill (Black-capped Petrel)
 A more intermediate Black-capped Petrel
 Cory's Shearwaters we found on the water with some feeding shearwaters & Black-cappeds
 Great Shearwater in the same flock as the Cory's above, feeding on perhaps a squid
Band-rumped Storm-Petrel:  Occasionally we see these individuals with what appears to be a split rump patch, this bird is the first we've photographed this year.
 A more typical Band-rumped Storm-Petrel with some old primaries
 First summer Bridled Tern
 A tiny "flier" we found on the TOP deck when we cleaned the boat Sunday afternoon!
